Cholesterol is essential for the normal function of the body. Nonetheless, when its level in the blood rises beyond the normal range it causes health complications, including heart disease. One of the causes of high serum cholesterol is consumption of diet that is high in cholesterol. Therefore, avoiding or reducing the intake of high cholesterol foods is one way to maintain normal serum cholesterol level. It should be noted however the same high cholesterol food stuffs are also good sources of other essential nutrients such as protein, fatty acids, macro- and micro-nutrients, and carbohydrates.

In the following table is a list of cholesterol food sources and their corresponding cholesterol content (mg of cholesterol per 100 grams of food portion). The list represents the top 100 food sources highest in cholesterol content from among approximately 7500 food items common in the American diet and analysed by the USDA Nutrient Data Laboratory.
